COVID-19 vaccination programme

Patients are asked not to contact the surgery regarding COVID-19 vaccinations. We will call you to book an appointment. We will start to call people who fall into these priority groups over the coming weeks to book appointments for them.

It’s possible you’ll be asked to attend a GP practice which is not your usual one so you can have a vaccination. Your GP practice is part of a group of local GP practices looking after the healthcare of patients in the local area. The vaccinations will be delivered to one GP practice which will act as a hub to give the vaccinations to a range of local people, not just those registered as patients at this practice. By using one location it means we can use all our skilled staff in one location to provide the vaccination clinics. We have also chosen locations that mean that patients can safely receive their vaccination.

You might have to wait to have a vaccine as every dose is needed to protect those at highest risk. You will be called in as soon as there is enough vaccine available. Please don’t contact the us to seek a vaccine before then.

If you have not yet been approached about having the Covid-19 vaccine, please read the information: why you are being asked to wait. You can also find further information on the Covid-19 vaccine here.

 

Please continue to abide by all the social distancing, wearing of face masks and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives.

 

People with a history of immediate-onset anaphylactic reactions to medicines, food or vaccines should not have the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, and anyone who has an anaphylactic reaction to the first dose should not have a second dose.
